who lives here knows taxes were due december 10 at the latest. we still haven't gotten, we won't know until january what the results of how we're doing in that first payment of the property taxes. the reason i say that is the apartment fees are tied to the roll, they are built along with your property tax so that's when they come in. >> in terms of expenses, as i mentioned, 40 percent of the budget has been expended for personnel and we're at 42 percent of the year so we're just, we're slowly catching up and i expect by the end of the year, as i said, we'll be not completely fully staffed but we're getting there. the other sort of expenses or trends that we're seeing in expenses is they are starting to bill out the work orders but most of the departments don't bill them out until january for the first 6 months of the year so that's where we'll see the large ones, which one largest is the city attorney's office. so we're waiting for that. just kind of a footnote. next meeting we'll be presenting the first iteration of the budget. we are working on requests right now from the vario

and collection agreement and the tax certificate. because that's integral on the tax exempt borrowing that bawsca will be doing on the proceeds. the use of proceeds is a commitment that we make in the representation of the tax covenant. it says that we will use these for eligible tax proceeds. we have plenty of items that you approved. and they include our capital project expenditures that are appropriated to large part. and includes the repayment of bonds. by using these proceeds to repay bond service it allows low increases for rate payors. this gives a look at what the rate increases would be with and without the prepayment. you see the most dramatic is that absent of prepayment we need 26% one-time rate increase. followed by smaller ones after that. however now we would be able to shave off 14%. a pretty material amount of money as lower rate increases in 14 and 15. the schedule is for your consideration, and then to the board of supervisors in january, and bawsca would be teed up to the bonds in january. >> thank you. commissioner moran. >> i would like to make a comment. this is

to return or some other way return that excess revenue to tax payers or go to voters to ask voters to approve an increase in the limit, but we have not reached that point yet. a couple of other points you might be interested in, we did look back at fiscal year 11-12 with the initial budget we expected to be well over 200 million below the gam limit, but 11-12 was a year of very strong revenue growth above our budget. but still, we still den end the year well within the limit, at least $70 million below the budget in 11-12. also looking forward even with our strong revenues, our preliminary forecast shows that we should still be within the limit and this would be 13-14 by over $100 million, under our current growth assumptions, probably over 150 million. it will be something that as we work with the mayor's office mayor's office from the five-year plan, we will keep monitoring this in the future to make sure we inform you as soon as possible if the city looks like it's bumping up against this state limit. i'm happy to answer the questions. >> there are no questions from the committe
